Physical Education and Health
The graduation requirement for Physical Education is three semester credits, inclusive to grades 9-12. The sequential program is based on the assumption that one semester will be attained at the ninth grade level.
The Health course will influence attitudes toward health, which will promote respect for the human mind and body including factors which foster optimum healthful living. Good health shall be defined as mental, social and physical well-being, and not merely the absence of disease and sickness. Emphasis will be placed on developing self-esteem and positive intra-personal relationships. Students will also learn the benefits of Fitness and Nutrition. The students will be encouraged to explore the emerging health information and develop the ability to weigh the validity of such information for application to their existing health status.
